Built Environment and Active Transportation

The built environment can influence many public health issues such as physical activity, healthy eating, mental health, injury prevention, and health equity. In addition, it can help, or hinder, active transportation opportunities. Active transportation refers to any form of human-powered transportation – walking, cycling, and wheelchair use, in-line skating or skateboarding.

The Built Environment and Active Transportation Public Health Topic is intended to support efforts to improve our physical surroundings by providing multi-sectorial professionals with a compilation of International, National and Provincial/Territorial level data, strategies and guidance.
